Crowns and bridges can restore or replace missing or damaged teeth to help keep you smiling. For crowns and bridges in Spokane, our friendly and professional dental team have you covered.
At Matta Woolf Family Dentistry, we are dedicated to helping our patients restore their smiles. Teeth that are weakened by injury or decay sometimes need help in order to retain full function of your mouth and to retain your tooth’s natural roots. One of the most effective ways is with high-quality porcelain dental crowns or bridges.
If you have experienced severe tooth damage or decay, our dentist may recommend a dental crown. A crown is a durable shell that we use to restore the look, quality and strength of your tooth. We use crowns when the decay or damage is too extensive for a filling to repair. Crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of teeth in cases of discolored or misshapen teeth.
The process of placing a crown usually takes two visits, depending on your needs. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, metal (such as gold or silver), zirconia or ceramic. Our office offers high-quality porcelain crowns to ensure a strong and natural-looking restoration.
If you have experienced tooth loss, our dentist may recommend a dental bridge. Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth and fill the gap left behind by tooth loss. Our bridges are made from high-quality porcelain.
Depending on your needs, we can offer one of three types of bridges:
The most popular kind of bridge. Traditional bridges consist of one or more false teeth (called pontics) and are held in place by crowns (called abutments).
Similar to traditional bridges, cantilever bridges are supported by an abutment on one side rather than on both sides.
A conservative alternative to a traditional bridge, a Maryland bridge consists of a pontic attached to a metal or porcelain framework. The framework is then bonded to the backs of two adjacent teeth on either side of the gap.
